Health Care
In health care applications, silicones provide a unique combination of properties that reduce patient risk, including important contributions to medical devices and innovations.
Silicones have helped allow our favorite electronics to become smaller, with greater functionality, and protect these devices from damage.
Silicones are used extensively in automotive manufacturing, and in components for other vehicles. Their use contributes to increased durability and reliability of the vehicle parts and most importantly, to the safety of drivers and passengers.

Silicones play an increasingly important role supporting improvement, innovation, and progress in a wide range of American industry sectors, representing products from automobiles to electronics to consumer products such as household and personal care items.

Silicones have helped advance technologies and innovations

such as LED lights, electric vehicles, medical prosthetics, and renewable energy sources, such as wind turbines and solar panels.


Over many decades, the silicones industry and independent scientists have conducted more than 1,000 studies to assess the safety of silicones relative to workers, consumers, and manufacturing processes. The results of this continuous research and testing demonstrate the safety of silicones across all their important uses.
